Obviously first you open the the back door. Then you unscrew the the two Philips head screws. Then you pull the light out to the side of the vehicle. This might need clarification because it took me a few minutes to figure it out so here's the deal. After you unscrew each light from the back of the car standing behind the car then stand on either side of the car ( like you would if you were putting gas in the car ) and pull on the light. The screws that hold the light in are facing rearwards on the vehicle and the units holding it place are to the left and right of the vehicle. and good luck

There's a Phillips screw at the top of the marker light. You would need to unscrew that and then you will be able to remove the side marker light from your Toyota 4Runner. We have also included a link to a video in the related links section below.

Look in the trunk, there is a cover over the light assembly - open and you will have access to change the light.

Open trunk and remove screws that secure light assembly to car. Pull assembly straight back to remove from car. Remove the dead light and replace with proper new light. Install in reverse order of removal.

Question isn't clear. Are you asking how do you replace the bulb -OR- how to remove the entire lens assembly?
